Harry Haitch takes a hazardous journey to discover who killed his father and learns that he didn’t know his dad at all. In the end he finds the truth but at great cost to himself and those he loves. His enemy is vanquished but it’s a pyrrhic victory even though ‘justice’ is done.
The novel is set in the present against the background of the collapse of the world’s economies and financial markets. When Harry discovers the existence of a secret organisation - The Apostles - and struggles against their leader, Manes, he realises that not all conspiracy theories are false. Who actually runs capitalism – governments, nation states, corporations, or, perhaps, the Apostles? But the real story is Harry’s struggle for the truth.
The majority of the action takes place in England but Harry’s quest takes him to Sardinia, Belarus, the USA and to Chongqing in South West China.
